THLANE UNIVERSITY 





CLASS OF 2009: THE KATRINA CLASS 

T-WAVE 






Tulone University 



Dear Classmates, 

Before you enjoy the photos and memories contained in the following pages, we would like you 
to take a few moments to reflect on all that you have accomplished within these past 4 years. 
You have worked hard, learned more than you probably could have imagined, and, as evidenced 
by the hundreds of pictures you submitted, had a great time along the way. We applaud you. 

If you let your mind wander back to our white coat ceremony, you may recall the keynote address 
that encouraged us to achieve our dreams by "standing on the shoulders of giants." Little did 
we realize how soon this message would come into play. Just weeks later. Hurricane Katrina 
uprooted our lives and threatened our dreams of becoming doctors. Yet, through a Tulane 
alumnus and true "giant" of medicine. Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, we were able to continue our 
education, our dreams, in Houston. Through the hard work and tenacity of our administration 
and faculty, we were able to see what self-sacrifice can accomplish. And through all of us — our 
diversity, our compassion, our fortitude — we were able to continue and build upon the unique 
spirit of Tulane. 

Indeed, although our medical school memories will always be influenced by the devastation of 
Hurricane Katrina, the "Katrina Class" label is one we have worn with honor. Our school was 
flooded with six feet of water, our hospitals severely damaged, our population depleted, yet we 
stood by to play a role in Tulane's, and New Orleans', resurrection. With collective resilience in 
the face of this upheaval, we channeled our energies towards the citizens of our city who were in 
desperate need of healing, and we should feel fortunate that even our nascent medical knowledge 
had a meaningful impact. On many levels, we have faced challenges head-on, looking to them 
as opportunities for change, approaching them with great patience and pragmatism. Our class 
has already endured much more than most graduating medical students and we should take pride 
in the fact that we are bound by an experience greater than our common medical education. 

Another "giant" of medicine. Sir William Osier, once wrote of student life: "The hardest 
conviction to get into the mind of a beginner is that the education upon which he is engaged 
is not a college course, not a medical course, but a life course, for which the work of a few years 
under teachers is but a preparation." As we excitedly advance on to the challenges of finally 
being a "doctor," we are indeed still in the preparation stages of a greater life course. However, 
have faith in the fact that we have benefited from some of the most unique and invaluable of 
life lessons. We will be better doctors because of it. 

Thank you, Class of 2009, for an amazing 4 years. It has been a true honor and privilege to 
compile this yearbook, and we have aimed to capture all the passion and joie de vivre that each 
of you embodies. 

Congratulations! We wish you nothing but the best in achieving 
your dreams in all stages of your medical career.

Dear Class of 2009, 



It gives us great pleasure to welcome you into the medical profession. You began your medical 
school studies with us in August of 2005, and on August 29, we all became participants and 
witnesses to one of this country's greatest natural disasters. Shortly after Katrina we made a 
commitment to you: we would make sure you graduated on time from Tulane. In spite of what 
seemed like insurmountable obstacles, you persevered, stuck with us, and came back to New 
Orleans to help rebuild our city. For that, we are forever grateful. We are sure that you, like us, 
learned what is truly important from this experience. We certainly learned what it means to be 
patient, but more importantly, we learned what it means to be part of something much larger 
than ourselves. 

We are both very proud of what your class has achieved. Among your many accomplishments 
include establishing free clinics in New Orleans, working to help rehabilitate substance abusers 
and working with local school children to improve their scholastic performance. Many of you 
have helped build homes and repair broken lives. Medicine is a service profession, and you 
certainly have shown your dedication to serving others. 

The promise that you all began with in 2005 was realized during the 2009 match, when you 
were rewarded for your efforts with the opportunity to train in so many outstanding programs 
and disciplines. Some of your best and brightest have chosen to stay with us at Tulane. Others 
have chosen to go on to some of the best and most prestigious programs in the country. All of 
you will carry that Tulane spirit and the Katrina experience to make you excellent physicians as 
scores of Tulane students have done before you. 

All of our paths will cross again, whether professionally or because we know what it means to 
miss New Orleans. . .so we expect to be able to say "I knew that student when. ..." 

Class of 2009, go out, practice your art, show your compassion, and make a difference! We wish 
you success and don't forget us! 

With our most sincere wishes for your successful futures, 
Marc J. Kahn, MD 
N. Kevin Krane, MD

I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea 
and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability 
and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract: 

To hold him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to be 
a partner in life with him, and to fulfill his needs when required; to look 
upon his offspring as equals to my own siblings, and to teach them this art, if 
they shall wish to learn it, without fee or contract; and that by the set rules, 
lectures, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of 
the art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to students bound by 
this contract and having sworn this Oath to the law of medicine, but to no 
others. 

I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according 
to my greatest ability and judgement, and 1 will do no harm or injustice to 
them. 

I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a 
plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion. 

In purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art. 

I will not use the knife, even upon those suffering from stones, but 1 will 
leave this to those who are trained in this craft. 

Into whatever homes I go, I will enter them for the benefit of the sick, avoiding 
any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption, including the seduction of 
women or men, whether they are free men or slaves. 

Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with 
my professional practice or not, which ought not to be spoken of outside, I 
will keep secret, as considering all such things to be private. 

So long as I maintain this Oath faithfully and without corruption, may it be 
granted to me to partake of life fully and the practice of my art, gaining the 
respect of all men for all time. However, should I transgress this Oath and 
violate it, may the opposite be my fate.

In Memoriam 



Dr. Michael E. DeBakey 

September 7, 1908 - July 12, 2008 




Dr. DeBakey was one of the most revered physicians of our time and has been 
called "the greatest surgeon of the 20**^ century." After being in Houston for half a 
century, he immediately came to the aid of his alma mater following Hurricane 
Katrina. Dr. DeBakey, at age 97, personally arrived to support and welcome us on 
our first day at Baylor. The DeBakey Foundation also donated funds to Baylor to 
cover expenses incurred by hosting Tulane following the storm. 

Thank you, Dr. DeBakey, for a lifetime of service and invention and for being a role 
model for generations of medical students.

2^^K We Innovate Healthcare 

^ From Research 
. to Real Life 



We all dream of doing big things. 

Solving important problems. 

Making a difference. Improving lives. 

Transforming these dreams 

into reality requires ambition, 

creativity, and a company like ours to 

help put all the elements together. 




Roche is a leader in preventing, diagnosing and treating 
disease, enhancing the quality of life for everyone. 
We invest almost $5 billion a year in innovative research, 
and our capabilities combine traditional biomedical 
science with the latest advances in biotechnology, 
genetics and genomics. Our investment in research has 
led to the introductions of important new medicines for 
osteoporosis and flu. And our current pipeline includes 
potential advances for treating cancer, diabetes, arthritis 
and hepatitis C. 

Few companies possess the global strength in both 
diagnostics and therapeutics that Roche enjoys. 
By forging closer links between diagnosis and 
treatment, we're leading the way to a new dimension 
in healthcare-individualized medicine. This approach 
identifies the best treatment for a specific 
individual. 



And since we understand that every 
individual is unique, we strive to ensure 
a diverse workplace. Roche encourages 
creativity and embraces differences in talent, 
education, work style, lifestyle and culture. 

Arthritis, cancer, diabetes, hepatitis, HIV/ 
AIDS, influenza, nervous system disorders 
and osteoporosis - just some of the real life 
issues Roche is focusing on and providing 
solutions for.

The Graduating Class of 

Tulane University 

School of Medicine 

Come visit Houma, Louisiana 

and discover the many assets which make this a special place to live and work. 

We have abundant natural resources, from our scenic bayous to our prolific 

seafood and offshore mineral resources. Houma enjoys a very low 

unemployment rate due to the strength of natural gas, oil, agriculture, 

restaurant, retail and fabrication industries. The quality of healthcare services 

available in Terrebonne Parish is among the best in the country. We have 

approximately 80,000 residents, with 110,000 total residents including 

surrounding communities... and we're growing. We're in close proximity to 

everything: only 57 miles southwest of New Orleans and 20 miles to Nicholls 

State University! Our Cajun Culture is one of our national treasures (along 

with our food) and our fishing and sporting opportunities are legendary. 

Houma is just a melting pot of friendly, caring people with much to offer. 

Come and discover for yourself why this is such a special and unique corner 

of the world. We invite you to stay for a while... even for a lifetime.
